2Birds Band are not only funky and sexy- they are rooted in serious musical study and capable of referring at any moment to their roots in Bach, Debussy, Beethoven et al." 

CHRISTIAN HOWES

Started in 2014, 2BIRDS BAND is a unique strings-based ensemble with rhythm section that explores the boundaries of violin and cello through different styles of music. Fusing classical tradition and contemporary styles, the band presents a new way of approaching strings with a sound both cultured and groovy. It has been performing and teaching clinics in Boston, New York, Toronto and France. The band released albums First Flight (2015), For Lack Of A Better World (2016) and String Groover (2017).

I never knew this kind of music could be so much fun. I would drag anyone right off the street to see them.

2Birds Band is one of those rare groups that simply must be heard and seen to be believed!

“The Birds categorically flew. Their novel creativity and atonal innovations evoke the groundbreaking of D’Indy or Hindemith as well as more contemporary pop icons”
